As Papa Roach prepare to return to the studio, they will tide fans over with their first video release.
An as-yet-untitled DVD/VHS, due this fall, will feature live and
behind-the-scenes footage, TV appearances and videos for "Last Resort," "Broken Home" and "Between Angels and Insects," the band's publicist said Tuesday.
The video will document the past two years of Papa Roach's musical journey, which found them escalating from unknown rap-rockers to arena-filling chart-toppers. Infest, their 2000 major-label debut, has been certified triple-platinum.
Papa Roach have also devised a way to include their fans on the DVD/VHS. The group is asking for submissions from fans doing anything P-Roach related, whether attending a show or just talking about them. Details are available on the band's official Web site (www.paparoach.com) with August 15 the deadline for entries.
Meanwhile, Coby Dick and crew have met with several producers and will soon choose one for their third album, their publicist said. The group has been writing material this summer on Ozzfest and will record in December and January, with a late-spring or early-summer release date planned.
Papa Roach hit Columbus, Ohio, with Ozzfest on Friday (see "Ozzfest: Complete Itinerary Announced").
